Jaime's Protest 'Art'
I keep thinking I've seen all the lunacy that the Art Lark can offer, but I'm always wrong. Here's the latest: Spanish "artist" Jaime del Val strolling the streets of Madrid wearing nothing but his pangender cyborg outfit and a camera pointing at his naked genitals. The equipment projects a huge image of his pride-and-joy on to the walls of buildings. He claims this egotistical piffle is a protest against homophobia, surveillance, control and the consumer society. As performance art goes, it looks rather limp to me. Perhaps if he gave a more solid performance Sir Nick would book him for Tate Modern.
